Sergeant House is a three minute stroll from the glistening waters and palm fringed beach of Unawatauna. Unawatuna Beach is one of the best and safest beaches on the south west coast of Sri Lanka. The gentle waves lap against its golden-white sands whilst simple cafes and restaurants adjoining the beach offer cool refreshments and delicious snacks and meals.
Less than a 15 minutes drive away from Sergeant House lies the historic 16th - 17th century Galle Fort. This is an outstanding UNESCO World Heritage example of a hexagonal stone fort built on the edge of the Indian Ocean by the Dutch to protect this historic trading port and harbour. Today the Fort functions as a thriving local community sprinkled with European residents. Within a few minutes of leaving Sergeant House you can be there exploring its ramparts, shops, cafes, museums and many historic Dutch and British colonial buildings.
Sergeant House, with its tranquil gardens, ponds and swimming pool offers an ideal oasis to enjoy the richness of the south west coast of Sri Lanka and surrounding countryside. The House is the perfect size for individuals, couples or a small group of friends as we offer the special, personalised service and attention to detail found in a high standard boutique villa. The House also makes an excellent central base if you are interested in: the Galle Literary Festival; Galle Cricket Series; visits to Geoffrey Bawa Gardens and other famous gardens; a Sri Lankan cooking experience; touring ancient temples; kayaking from the beach or Koggala Lagoon; enjoying the multitude of water sports including scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming or surfing or; trips to the southern National Parks and Sinharaja Rainforest (also a UNESCO world heritage site).

Please speak to us if you are interested in any of these options. We are flexible to your needs and open to your suggestions.
Boutique casual luxury accomodation in a lovely village close to Colombo.
Beautiful little oasis near the beach. Incredible rooms, very comfortable beds and everything we needed. The pool was glorious and such a chic design. Yummy breakfast too.
This colonial house has been restored and beautifully decorated. The staff are excellent and the whole feeling is luxurious and zen like.
A place of tranquility, beauty and friendliness
The property is absolutely stunning! Its incredibly private and relaxing. The food was delicious. Staff was incredibly helpful. Easy to get to the beach and a quick 15 minute ride to Gall center.
This hotel is so beautiful! The architecture and gardens are amazing and you will enjoy just sitting and taking in every detail of the place and its decor. The rooms are beautiful and each one has its own unique look. The pool is lovely and the food and drinks are great. You won't ever want to leave!
Gorgeous green oasis with lovely attention to the smallest detail. It's the perfect place to end your trip, rest and unwind. It feels like a private Spa. We loved the pool & had some great massages for an additional charge of 4500 LKR/ Person (25$)! Not a bargain but you just don't want to leave this gem and it was well worth it! Food is great including a tasty variety of lunch options and if you want to stay in u can also dine and choose from various menus (20$-30$ /per person) with plenty of choices that should be ordered in advance, best after breakfast. Staff was most accommodating, laid back, friendly and efficient throughout our stay. What a peaceful stay! Marvellous!
Serene, peaceful, beautifully designed. It was the perfect place to retire to and relax in in busy Unawatuna. Very attentive and lovely manager. Delicious and colorful breakfast.
Such a beautiful place to stay, one of the best we had during our trip in Sri Lanka
The old grandeur and well maintained landscape.
